    This applies to my 1999 3RZ, so may not apply to other models:

    There is NO separate A/C relay.
    There is a heater relay, that controls the blower for both the heater and the A/C
    There is a separate A/C fuse that just protects the A/C circuitry.
    The little LED in the A/C push button only indicates that the A/C button has been pressed
    Something called the 'A/C Amplifier' controls the compressor clutch.
